There are many different ways in which you can enjoy Florida. If you have young children in your family, there is every chance that your Florida holiday will be spent at the theme parks seeing the magic of Disney and Universal Studios. However, there is plenty more on offer in this part of America. Miami is the place to be if you want to see the rich lifestyle and enjoy a nightlife that never knows when to call it quits. There are also plenty of chances to get away from the city and head out into the swamps and peaceful nature of the Everglades. Sometimes it is too warm to do anything strenuous in Florida, which is why hiring a hire car and setting off on adventure is likely to be one of the best suggestions for a Florida holiday.
There is no getting away from the fact that you could easily spend your Florida holiday lying on the beach. If you need to get away, relax and recharge your batteries, this is the sort of destination that will refresh you and leave you all set to make the most of life again. However, if you find the idea of lying on a beach on the Gold Coast or in the south of Florida to be a little too quiet, get on the road and see an array of stunning panoramic views all along the Gulf coast.
See the stunning islands of Florida
You’ll even find that there are island all along Florida that are well worth checking out. Less than 15 miles from Fort Myers you will find Captiva and Sanibel, two stunning islands that will provide you with the best of everything. If you are keen to see the very best of Florida wildlife, but from a safe distance, you’ll find that the J N Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge is the ideal place to be. The park holds birds, otters, raccoons and alligators alongside a whole host of other animals so if you want to make the most of your time while seeing the very best of the local population, this is a must-see stop on your hire car itinerary.
Once you have had your fill of Florida wildlife, get back in your car and head south to Naples. This is a quiet yet very stylish resort, the perfect destination for shopping, strolling and enjoying some nightlife on the main drag on 5th Avenue. Life in the middle of Miami can be far too hectic for a summer holiday but heading to Naples will provide you with the ideal opportunity to blend everything that makes up for a relaxing yet interesting time.
